Cher Lloyd: 'I'm scared of failing in America'

By
Cher Lloyd
Cher Lloyd has revealed that she is terrified of failing to crack America.

The 'Swagger Jagger' singer has long been interested in targeting the US music industry, but is plagued with concerns about whether her music "will work" stateside.

"America is something I'm going to do," she told The Sunday Mirror. "But I want to do well out there. I've got big dreams. Even though I've achieved [success in the UK], there's so much more I want to do.

"America is such a big thing to try and do. If I did try and do it I don't want to be rejected. I want to be the one to succeed and make it work. I'm no ­Robbie Williams."

However, Lloyd stated that she would never compromise her musical beliefs in order to achieve success, even if her mentor Simon Cowell insisted on making changes.

"I would have told Simon or whoever to p**s off if they handed me 20 songs and said sing them for this album," she said. "No way would I have done that."

Lloyd's debut album Sticks & Stones is due for release in the UK on November 7.

The record's second single 'With Ur Love' will be made available after Lloyd performs the track on The X Factor tonight (October 30).
